Olympus’ C-Series 730UZ
The Olympus C-730 Ultra Zoom brings to the table an impressive list of features for its price tag. Perhaps the most striking is its 10x Optical Zoom feature (equivalent to a 1140mm telephoto lens on a 35mm SLR camera). The resolution has been increased from 3.0 to 3.2 Megapixels and the camera is one of the first few to include support for the FujiFilm xD MemoryCard system as well as the more common SmartMedia form-fator. A flash-sync port and other additions such as adjustable AF & exposure timings all add to its exceptional value.

Sunbeam Sound Activated El Cables
The inverter is similar to the inverters we have seen from Sunbeam. One small difference, is the control unit and the inverter are combined in this kit. Because of the wide range of use for this product, the inverter is black and can be placed just about anywhere. For this review, I mounted it on the back of my case with the double sided tape. This way I was able to turn it on and off with out having to open my case. I would have preferred the ability to mount it in a drive bay.

WinBackup by LIUtilities Review
Another highlight of the Add/Remove tab is the ability to select user specific material to backup, including the user's "Favorites", "Desktop", and "My Documents" folder. No more searching needless searching through the directory tree of your hard drive to find the folders you need. There is a slight catch to this, however, in that it's an all or nothing proposition selecting any of the user settings. If you wish to not backup a subdirectory in one such as a folder under "My Documents", you need to go through the directory tree to deselect. WinBackup does help you find the directory more quickly however in that whenever one of the user specific settings is checked, the corresponding section of the file tree is checked.
